    South Carolina voter ID law rejected by Justice Department - latimes.com



    Reporting from Washington— The Obama administration's civil rights office is stepping up its fight with the Southern states over voting rights, announcing it will block a new South Carolina law that would require voters to show a government-issued photo identification before casting a ballot.

    The Justice Department invoked the Voting Rights Act on Friday and said the new photo-identification rule could deny the right to vote for tens of thousands of blacks and other minorities.

    "According to the state's statistics, there are 81,938 minority citizens who are already registered to vote and who lack DMV-issued identification," Thomas E. Perez, the chief of the department's civil rights division, said in a letter to South Carolina officials. He referred to a driver's license issued by the state Department of Motor Vehicles, the most common form of photo identification.

    81,938 voters in one state.

    This is why the republicans want to have these laws to keep voters from voting.

    Remember they dont want everyone to vote

    (Found: 207,000 Democratic voters. First remove the National Guard from the borders, then provide the buses from the border to the individual states polling places. New Haven, Ct's Mayor John "There won't be any Fire Department promotions from this class because they all have too many vowels in their last names" Distefano says he wants to stop the charade and just let them all vote openly, citizen or not)

    "... It was no surprise when DOJ announced today that it has rejected South Carolina’s voter identification law. Under Eric Holder, the Department of Justice has become a political arm of the Democratic Party. South Carolina officials said that they would fight DOJ’s ruling in court, pointing out that the Department was relying on grotesquely inaccurate data:


    Department of Motor Vehicles executive director Kevin Shwedo said the state Election Commission knew it was using inaccurate data when it released reports showing nearly 240,000 active and inactive voters lacked driver’s licenses or ID cards.

    Shwedo sent the state’s attorney general an analysis showing that 207,000 of those voters live in other states, allowed their ID cards to expire, probably have licenses with names that didn’t match voter records or were dead. He said the commission created “artificially high numbers to excite the masses.”

    How many of those 207,000 will cast ballots for Democratic candidates in November if Obama and Holder get their way? A lot, I suspect."

    bullshit!


    your own teams study on voting took five years to study the problem and found next to nothing of this type of fraud.

    Keep lying it gets you nowhere with the facts in place.

    Why do the obama and holder keep insisting minorities are not competent enough to attain an id? Do they have that little confidence in minorities?
